Monday Mario


Boyfriend wanted to be highlighted in today's "Monday Mario" post so here you go.  The other night I spied Mario sitting on Boyfriend's work bag.  I had to take the picture quickly and then shoo him off of it because Boyfriend would not approve of Mario's furry butt on his bag.  Ha ha.

I went out on a 7 mi run today as the test run to see whether or not I'd participate in the San Jose Half Marathon this coming weekend.  I went very slowly and I took some walk breaks.  No shin pain.  If I have no shin pain tonight and no shin pain tomorrow I'll do the race albeit very slowly.

So I went into the triathlon this weekend very poorly prepared in the bike and run arena.  But guess what was the sorest part of my body (by far) after the triathlon?  My neck.  That's right.  After swimming 400 yds, biking 11 mi, and running 3 mi the most strenuous thing I did was try to keep my head above water.  Sigh.

I'm glad you were able to get out and run today and I hope you keep feeling strong!

Mario is such a cutie. I wonder where he wanted to go in that bag?

great job on the run!! yay for no pain!

mario is sooo cute :) one of my cats ALWAYS has to lay on SOMETHING, bag, purse, clothes, paper, whatever is on the counter she will lay on.

Our cat does the same thing. If the entire floor is bare except for one piece of paper, she will go sit on the paper. Silly animals!

Yay for a pain free run! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Your sore neck may also be from the bike. I find I can tend to get really tense in my neck and shoulder region. Just a thought!

HA! Love the photo. Our cats "own" our stuff by sitting on it like that all the time too!

Sorry about the neck...

My buns go for the zipper on bags (or anything), better check that zipper......
